The FSR BLOG is a place where studies regarding the intersections between feminism and religion are shared with a wide audience. We understand feminism intersectionally to include all the diverse voices raised to counter oppression and articulate the well being of all people, all women, and all who struggle against injustice and oppression around the globe. This chorus of voices name themselves as womanist, mujerista, feminist, and those yet to come. The Blog includes an academic conversation about religion in feminist studies and feminism in Religious Studies, but is equally concerned with how feminist activists identify as religious. We invite you to join us as we build and grow the blog.
The FSR Blog dream was developed by a small group from the Teaching for Change conference in June 2005. The dream slowly grew into a reality and a commitment by a variety of conference members to create a website that would not only host discussions about feminism in religion for a wider audience, but also be housed with and in partnership to the Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion (JFSR) and Feminist Studies in Religion, Inc. (FSR) the organizing body of these projects.
What You’ll Find . . .
The Blog includes current events and the latest research, book reviews and teaching techniques, job opportunities and events, and more. It is about thoughtful conversation and reflective critique, but also good old information for those interested in feminism and religion. It includes a wide range of topics:
- academic/theoretical discussions
- book discussions,
- teaching experiences,
- analysis of current events,
- call for papers,
- professional/work-life issues,
- announcements from JFSR when issues are released
- film, art, music
- summer reading reflections (new book, article, etc that sparked your interest this summer)
- and so on . . .
BLOG is a blog persona under which general information such as conferences, new books, job announcements, and so on are posted. If you would like to submit material for consideration to be posted by the Blog, email Blog(at)fsrinc.org. Similar to the Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion, we welcome a variety of contributions that focus on women’s experience or on gender as a category of analysis, and that further feminist theory, consciousness, and practice as they pertain to a weblog format.
